[Trailer] – Lincoln

13 Sep

Finally, here it is, feast your eyes upon it, the first full trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln has just been released, and you can watch it below.

Not much needs to be said about the huge expectations that have surrounded this project from the minute it was announced. It’s Steven Spielberg doing a biopic adapted by a Pulitzer Prize winner from a highly regarded book about Abraham Lincoln, the most beloved of American Presidents, which would be portrayed here by Daniel Day-Lewis, arguably the greatest living actor.

Consider this an instant Oscar front-runner even though we’ve still got a couple of months to go before it opens, the pedigree is just too much to ignore; Mr. Day-Lewis may just have a seriously good shot at his third Academy Award if things go his way.

Directed by Steven Spielberg; written by Tony Kushner based on the book by Doris Kearns Goodwin; starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, Tommy Lee Jones, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, Walton Goggins, Jared Harris and John Hawkes. Lincoln opens November 9.
